Re: What did you do to your XJ today

I didn't get much done. I spent a couple hours trying to justify buying gears and ARB's when my rockwells only cost 1000$

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

I just talked to my dad he said when he told MP's I wanted my bumper for another jeep they offered to build a "cool tube bumper." Classy...


Ordered the pinion brake brackets and rotors.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Technically yesterday but I was in no state to type last night haha
Nothing impressive and the Jeep's in no condition for pictures yet haha.

Little silver button is kinda like a kill switch, have to hold it to send power to the starter (cars get stolen and joy-riden here often). Large toggle switch for an electric fan and placed there to hide the 'kill switch'.


and the electric fan.


While I'm at it, here's the grinding issue that I was having... anyone have a reason for me not to dremmel this metal strap off?


Installed some 100w each daylighters... I know they aren't prefectly level and I'm getting black zip ties LOL . They're wired to the factory fog light switch... not sure if I'll keep it this way though because they can only be turned on when the lights are on and automatically turn off when I switch the high beams on.


also installed 6.5" speakers in the front to replace the 5.25"s... replacing the hatch 5.25"s for 6.5"s soon.

The factory fog light's dont put out enough amps for after market lights.. set up a 30 amp or 40 amp relay per light..get the most out of them...

Thanks for letting everyone know the location and the process. Not the brightest bulb, are you?

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Wait, you have to install a security system for the jeep, but you mount lights with zip-ties?

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

I will definately look into changing that for the lights, thanks. You should see how bright they get even so.

As for not being the brightest bulb, I never said I was. You'd still need the key or know how to hot-wire and push a button at the same time to steal it though. This just serves as an added obstacle. As far as your comment goes, you aren't the brightest either. Your XJ is just as easy, if not easier to steal than mine. At least I have moved my "location and process" off the steering column giving my Jeep better odds. Besides that, I'm not worried about anyone here stealing it and haven't disclosed my location.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

The lights are mounted with a bolt and nut, the wires ran to them are zip-tied

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

If it makes you feel any better I like the push and hold idea.
A tard thief will probably think about flipping every switch, but who thinks to push and hold.
Obviously the prius drivers didn't. Too soon?

Bonney Lake/Puyallup? Graduated in 07? Have a minor in photography? Shouldn't be too hard.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Wasn't meaning to offend. Didn't see the mounting hardware. Definitely like the push button though.
